Historical Background

This historic tennis competition dates back to 1891 when the French Championships were first held. At the time, only national players who were part of national clubs could join, however, perhaps ironically, a Briton won the first competition. His name was H. Briggs and he qualified for the championship as he lived in Paris.

By 1925, the French Championships evolved to welcome international amateur players. In the years that followed, the tennis competition was organised in a variety of courts, but these were primarily always clay. During the second world war, the official competition was not organised, but one based on the same rules was, however, this was not recognised by the Fédération Française de Tennis, the French tennis governing body.

In 1968, the French Championship was the first Grand Slam to become an Open, and welcome both professional and amateur players from across the globe. It is at around this time that the competition got its more familiar name. It is also affectionately referred to as the Roland-Garros, after the famed French aviator.

Prize Money, Ranking Points, and Champions

The French Open is an important challenge in the life of any tennis player, and apart from the prestige reputation which comes with ranking highly in the results table, participants can also expect a sizeable cash prize. In 2023, the competition gave out €49.6 million in prize money. The competition is highly regarded for offering the same prize money value for both men and women winners.

Amongst the champions and record holders, one can find legends such as Novak Djokovic. He was the winner of the last Men's Singles in 2023, marking his third French Open title and 24th Grand Slam win.

Chris Evert holds the record for most Women's Singles titles, with a total of seven. The record for the most consecutive women's singles titles is jointly held between Monica Seles and Justine Henin.

At 17 years and 3 months, American Michael Chang is the youngest player to have ever won the Men's competition. Even younger than Chang is Monica Seles who won the Women's competition at the age of 16 years and 6 months. At the other end of the age spectrum, the oldest player to win the Men's competition is Rafael Nadal, who claimed his 14th French Open title in 2022 at the age of 36.
